Course Time-tabling:

Part of the benefit in booking your First Aid Courses with FA4A comes with ‘Discounted Fees’ as well as the opportunity to ‘Spread the Training Over Longer Periods’ so you don’t have staff, volunteers and/or students being missing for large parts of the day / week for example:

  • First Aid at Work (FAAW) Course normally covers 3 x days of 6 hours per day (not including breaks)
  • Most smaller organisations find it hard to release their people for this amount of time and most First Aid Companies can not spread the First Aid Training over longer time scales
  • FA4A can Spread out the FAAW course over:
    • 3 weeks of 6 hours per week, or;
    • up to 6 Weeks of 3 hours per week.

Course Costs:

For First Aid At Work Courses:

  • Can be discussed during a free consultation about the organisation’s First Aid training Needs
  • Will be higher if using our dedicated First Aid Training Rooms at the GL3 Community Hub in Churchdown
  • Courses can be carried out at your locations, however, Disability Access will be required as our Trainer Chris Auer-Howett is a Wheelchair Disabled Army veteran

For First Aid for Mental Health Course:
